Chance me for UCs/USC, please :)

<p>The major ones I'm concerned with are SD & LA. Berkeley not so much because it seems to be too focused on academics but it's worth a shot. USC may be a back up.</p>

4.10 - 4.20 </p>

<p>SAT I: (retaking)
R: 700
M: 770
W: 730</p>

<p>SAT II:
Bio M: 720 (Not submitting probably)
Chem: [not taken yet]
Math Lv 2: [not taken yet]</p>

<p>APs taken/taking (like it matters):
AB Calc
World History
United States History</p>

<p>Class Rank:
Top 10% I think, maybe top 5?</p>

<p>No financial aid needed</p>

<p>In state</p>

250+ Community Service hours w/various awards (currently doing more)
Cross Country 2 Years
Track and Field 1 Year</p>

<p>Worst Case Scenario Fallback: San Jose State/De Anza
High reaching: Idk, anyone have any ideas? I know I can't get into Caltech or Stanford for sure. I'm open to out-of-state universities too...</p>

<p>I know my ECs suck/basically don't exist lol. Please be honest & thank you :D</p>

<p>University of Southern California (indifferent)
UC Berkeley (indifferent)
UC Los Angeles (want to go)
UC San Diego (want to go)
If I don't get in anywhere else:
UC Davis
UC Irvine
UC Santa Barbara
UC Santa Cruz</p>

<p>University of Southern California - low reach/high match
UC Berkeley - low reach
UC Los Angeles - low reach/high match
UC San Diego - high match/match
UC Davis - high safety
UC Irvine - high safety
UC Santa Barbara - safety/high safety
UC Santa Cruz -safety</p>

<p>so i take that based on this you did not get the ELC letter (top 4 %)… but the Qualified on track right…</p>

<p>and redteabag is right… i concur,</p>

<p>Match for everything
Low reach for UCLA/UCB</p>

<p>UCSD: In.
USC: In.</p>

<p>Work on SAT II’s, test scores matter a lot for UC’s apparently? But then again they’re just SAT2’s.</p>

<p>If you make a unique essay perhaps on … A personal hobby you may have pursued in the past, especially to make you unique among the others, </p>

<p>e.g. I think infinity views on youtube is a pretty solid accomplishment… :)</p>
